TJ Shulman was noted near the money bubble of the Seniors event for his past success in tournaments and how he was a formidable opponent to deal with sitting behind a mountain of chips as he was for much of the event. Shulman came into the final table with the chip lead.
Despite taking a few substantial hits early, Shulman chipped back up and was declared the victor after a five-way deal was discussed. Shulman was not only pleased to take home first place, but to play in honor and memory of Mike Sica, the namesake for this event. Shulman and the other four players agreed to give the trophy to Sica’s family after the conclusion of the tournament.
Shulman has been in action in a few events so far during BPO and we expect to see even more of him for the rest of the series as he looks to take down yet another event.
